All isolated buildings and dwellings need to treat their wastewater, but some constraints may make it more difficult.


Whether it’s about where you place the system, the conditions of the site or the client’s requests, Professor DBO will explore different options to adapt a system to the terrain while ensuring the performance and longevity of the septic system.

How to adapt a septic system to the terrain - DBO))Clic 1
System O)) septic systems can adapt to any terrain

Space on site

A secondary treatment system requires a smaller footprint than conventional systems.


Despite that, finding enough space can be difficult because of existing limits such as slopes, a well, property limits, an existing building, a 100-year-old tree or the inability to position a rectangular shape on site. These are all conditions where System O)) can easily adapt to the needs of the client.


The flexibility of the components of a System O)) means that we can easily adapt the shape of the leach field to avoid obstacles or respect minimal distances required from specific elements.


Moreover, it can also be possible to split the field, or even adapt the number of pipes per row if a rectangular shape is impossible.

Soil conditions

Did you know that a number of problematic leach fields are linked to the soil’s difficulty to disperse the water? A high or perched water table, backfill with low permeability, a bad evaluation of the soil and parasitic water intake are all conditions that can lead to an inability of the soil to disperse the water.


An effective solution is the installation of drainage ditches, allowed up to 5 m from the leach field.


Although they are often marked as optional, this addition during the system installation can increase its ability to disperse parasitic water, or simply an additional security. In addition, it can be easily added during the installation, but it’s a costly and bothersome addition for clients if done years later.


System O)) septic systems can easily adapt to the terrain and the needs of clients, and they’re cost-effective, long-lasting and eco-friendly. Consult your local expert if you want advice, or simply for more information.
